A number of years ago, I was given this paddle from an estate settlement in Florida. I am curious what anyone can tell me about it other than what I can see for myself. It is 72" long, blade is 6" wide, shaft is 1 1/8" x 7/8". The blade is 1/4" thick at the end, 1/8" at the edges, and 29" from tip to the wrapping. I think the wood is maple. The decoration is burned in and then painted.
